The Glass Handel project features stars from dance, painting, music, fashion and film to showcase the music of George Frideric Handel and Philip Glass. This operatic art event features a range of artists with the goal being “to create a new way to experience live music, offering each audience member a unique immersion.”
I’m primarily interested in the dog piece that appears as a part of the extravaganza. (Shocking, I know.) The canine contribution to this innovative art installation is a short film co-directed by actress Tilda Swinton and visual artist Sandro Kopp, who have been in a relationship for about 15 years. The film shows her dogs playing on a beach in Scotland and is set to Handel’s aria “Rompo i Lacci” from his opera Flavio (sung by countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo).
